Marketing efforts seem to be paying off in Deadwood.
Revenue on both table games and slots were up this July when compared to last July. Overall gaming numbers saw an almost three percent increase.
Mike Rodman, executive director of the Deadwood Gaming Association said the Deadwood Chamber has done a great job teaming up with the State Department of Tourism to showcase Deadwood in new markets.
“Given the competitive gaming environment, it is impressive that Deadwood is bucking the trends. We believe additional games will further strengthen our position,” Rodman said.
Voters will decide in November whether to add the games of craps, roulette and keno to Deadwood's line-up.
